Michael J. Cross Becomes One of the Contributors to CIAO St. Louis

Michael is a native South St. Louisan with Italian roots. His mother was born and raised in Trieste, Friuli-Venezia Giulia in northeastern Italy. Previous to beginning a career in finance, Michael studied the liberal arts, languages, and international relations. He attended Saint Louis University where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts, and afterwards, spent three years in Europe where he received a Master of Arts in European Studies: Transnational and Global Perspectives from the University of Louvain (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) in Belgium. His passions include travelling and learning new languages. In St. Louis, Michael is involved with the Italian-American group Italiano Per Piacere, an association which promotes the Italian language and culture in the St. Louis region. During the summer months, he often travels to Italy to visit relatives and friends. Some of his favorite things to do while there are hiking the mountains, swimming or sailing in the Adriatic Sea, and of course, enjoying a nice cappuccino in his favorite plaza, Piazza Unità d’Italia in the center of Trieste which overlooks the sea. He lives in the Central West End neighborhood of Saint Louis and works as a financial analyst. To reach Michael, feel free to send him an email at: michaelcross@libero.it
